IxD Undergrad Programs

Greetings all,

Here’s an interesting article I found about undergraduate programs on the IxDA forum: http://www.ixda.org/node/16294

It’s only been two years since that article was initially posted, and already many schools are hopping on the bandwagon. I was hoping to get some advice from those of you who may know about some of the schools’ reputations. Some of these programs are specifically in Interaction Design while others are similar.

These are the top schools in whose programs I’m most interested:

Here are undergraduate programs at other various schools:

Some most of these programs aren’t specifically IxD, but they seem to be geared in that direction. So just to reiterate, any advice on these schools and programs would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
